It saddens me to this day that Greg is not here with us. On that November night I was the Paramedic on-scene as the narrative describes. I have lived the last the last 19 years thinking about Greg nearly everyday. To say the least what happened was horrific for him, as well as me. I struggle to this day with the senseless loss of a good man. I can only hope and pray that Greg is smiling down on us, as he is in a better place. Rest in peace my Brother. Mike

It has been nearly 13 years since you have left us. Your memory lives on through the work you did, and the ultimate sacrifice you made. My father, SERGEANT HERRERA, was honored not only to have your friendship, but also to have somebody like you working with him to do the job with an honest heart and take pride in the work you BOTH did. You were a dedicated police officer, and worked hard to not tarnish the badge you wore,and also to uphold the principles and morals that many officers do not carry with them today. . . On behalf of the Seargeant and his entire family: THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE, DEDICATION, AND DEAR FRIENDSHIP!!!

You have not been forgotten. Continue to watch over your loved ones and those still out on patrol guarding over the thin blue line.

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

We spent alot of time together. Your sergeant told you many lies about me I hope that now that you are with the Lord you know the truth. Some people will brainwash others to get people others on their side. The truth comes out in the wash. I learned much from you. I hope you rest in peace brother.
